Corinne Bailey Rae – Paper Dolls lyrics

You have incredible eyes and all the boys will go wild for you
But I was scared in case you made me made do those things
But would you oh would you believe me that I was your fool
Cause I've been lying awake at night wondering where you are now And if that metal turned out right
(Refrain)
All my life all my life
I said it's not right
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something
Yeah
I have tried I have tried
To say it's alright
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something
You wore undoubtable smiles you were divorced from inside they said
But I was disturbed when I heard that it's not what you preferred It gets to the point they expected
And who are you to disappoint them anyway
Time will get you in the end
Just when you shook off that regret
Around the corner comes a Mary in a fur coat to talk about it
(Refrain)
All my life all my life
I said it's not right
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something
Yeah
I have tried I have tried
To say it's alright
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something
Many words that have been spoken
Cut me out like paper dolls
Made me into something different
Something I could not dissolve
So far over don't their words slow ya
(Refrain)
All my life all my life
I said it's not right
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something
Yeah
I have tried I have tried
To say it's alright
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something
